Samsung announces new Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge smartphones

Using a blend of premium materials and cutting edge design and technology Samsung is driving forward a new standard in the consumer mobile market.

Crafted from metal and glass, the Galaxy S6 edge in particular with the world’s first curved display provides a solid grip with an immersive viewing experience.  The glass body available in a range of colourful tones including White Pearl, Gold Platinum, Blue Topaz, Green Emerald and Black Sapphire is made from the toughest glass to date, Corning® Gorilla Glass®4.

The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are both well equipped with incredible bright vivid front and rear cameras. Even in low light conditions the F1.9 lenses of the front (5 MP) and rear (16MP) cameras provide exceptional image quality in a smartphone.

Fully embedded WPC and PMA certified wireless technology of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge set a new standard for universal wireless charging. Any wireless pad in the market supporting this technology permits very fast charging  for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge at a rate of 1.5 times faster than the Galaxy S5, providing about 4 hours usage after only 10 minutes of charging.

Using the most advanced, cutting-edge technology available, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are provided with the world’s first 14nm mobile processor, a 64-bit platform, LPDDR4 memory system and UFS 2.0 flash memory. Combined with the 5.1 Quad HD Super AMOLED screen display offering 577ppi, the consumer experiences an unparalleled experience without compromise.

Protected mobile payment service will be provided through the use of Samsung Pay (launching in the United States during the second half  of 2015). Using both NFC (Near Field Communication) and MST (Magnetic Secure Transmission) technology this will allow users to pay with their mobile device and leave their wallets at home.

Built upon the upgraded Samsung KNOX secure mobile platform both the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge offer defence-grade features allowing for real-time protection from potential malicious attacks.

Available globally from 10th April 2015, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge will be available in White Pearl, Black Sapphire and Gold Platinum. Additionally the Galaxy S6 will be available in Blue Topaz, with the Galaxy S6 edge being available in Green Emerald colours. Both with storage options of 32/64 or 128GB.
